Want to replace a few parts, are these the right ones?

Sorry if this is the wrong subforum, I'm not really a regular here. I just use my fixed gear for some when I need to get some cardio in.

This is the bike I've got:

http://khsbicycles.com/bikes/2013-khs-models/flite-100/

And I want to add these:

And these:

http://singlespeedparts.nl/blb-bullhorn-bar-stuur.html

Do I need any other parts besides those 2?

You've already checked to make the sure the pedal threading/size is right? As well as the bar clamp diameter matches your stems clamp size? Otherwise these are just preference upgrades without need for other parts as far as I can see. Although you probably will want new bartape to go with your new bars.

No, these things are all new to me. I will have to check those. Can you see if they match by the specifications on the site?

Nope sorry, if you want to learn to do parts swaps yourself you'll also need to learn compatibility for yourself as well. It should be easy to find out.

Right. Compatibility isn't the problem it used to be, when the English, French and Italians all used different stuff, but it's still an issue. This is a good chance to make yourself known at a bike shop--get some advice, buy a few parts and establish yourself as a customer.

Good thing, stopping.. it can save your Life.

pedals probably fine.. 9/16" is common to other than one piece cranks on cruisers,

the bar center clamp diameter if not same as your stem, will have you replacing the stem as well .

thats no big burden .. might find reverse brake levers fit in the front ends of those cow horn bars..



I also recommend having a relationship with a brick and mortar bike shop..

There, you can hold things in your hands , before purchase..

Hi,

Riding fixed gear without toeclips is not a good idea, its an advanced skill.

You could chop and flip your current bars into bull horns.

U also need straps for the pedals.

I run all city cages x wabi straps x MKS gr-9. I don't like the look of bmx pedals on road bike, but they should work fine.
